What is salvation? How is it achieved? What does it mean?

Can you go to hell after going to church, every Sunday, for 80 years of your life?

Yes.

Unless you are born again, you will go to eternal damnation in Hell, when you die.

To be born again, you must accept Jesus Christ as your Savior God and LORD and proclaim it publicly as a testimony to your friends and neighbors.

Going to church is good, but it is merely outward action.  Judas Iscariot went everywhere with Jesus Christ during all of Jesus Christ’s ministry, but Judas Iscariot went to eternal damnation in Hell because he betrayed Jesus Christ.

Jesus Christ knew Judas Iscariot’s heart, and that is why at the Last Supper, Jesus Christ pointed out that the Betrayer was in the midst of the inner circle.

Outwards actions do not mean anything if not accompanied by genuine submission to God in one’s heart.

A person who refuses to submit to the Bible probably is not truly born again.  A person who want to protect homosexuals from criminal justice system and from being imprisoned/executed by national law is opposing the Law of God, which clearly emphasizes this need for the criminal legal process against homosexuals.

That person, regardless of how many years he or she has gone to church, will most likely go to eternal damnation in Hell.

True born again heart submits to the Word of God.

Although only God knows the heart and only God is the judge, there are indicators on earth which shows what a person’s heart is.  A truly born again heart submits to the Law of God, which is the Word of God, the Holy Bible.

Why do many so-called evangelical preachers say that God does not punish?

Unfortunately, many so-called evangelical preachers in the United States, United Kingdom, Canada, Australia, and New Zealand have gone away from the Bible.

This is clear because they refuse to condemn homosexuality from the pulpit and call on their nations to illegalize homosexuality.  They refuse to call homosexuality a crime against God and a crime against nature, even though the Bible is emphatic on it.

The Bible is clear.

Matthew 7:21-23 emphasizes:

21 “Not everyone who says to Me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ will enter the kingdom of heaven, but he who does the will of My Father who is in heaven will enter. 22 Many will say to Me on that day, ‘Lord, Lord, did we not prophesy in Your name, and in Your name cast out demons, and in Your name perform many miracles?’ 23 And then I will declare to them, ‘I never knew you; depart from Me, you who practice lawlessness.’

These are the very words of Jesus Christ.

So-called evangelical preachers who do not oppose homosexuality will go to eternal damnation in Hell.  Christ will say, “I never knew you!” when that evangelical preacher dies, if that evangelical preacher does not condemn homosexuality and homosexuals.  Any evangelical preaches who try to protect homosexuals, by saying that they “love them” are practicing lawlessness, because the Law of God is clear.

It does not matter if a preacher casts out demons in Christ’s name.  The pro-gay preacher will go to Hell.  It does not matter if the preacher performed miracles like healing the sick in the very name of Jesus Christ HImself.  The Bible is clear on this point.  The Bible is the Word of God.

Any preacher who protects homosexuals from criminal justice process of being arrested and put into prisons will go to eternal damnation in Hell, because he is preaching lawlessness.  This is from the Gospels and is the Gospel Truth.

God’s Law demands that homosexuals should be arrested and imprisoned/executed for their crime of homosexuality.

No preacher on earth, not even Rev. Billy Graham, has the right to go against the Law of God.  

Christ warned against lawlessness.  All Christian clergy who want to go to eternal life in Heaven must call for illegalization of homosexualty and arrest of homosexuals by national laws and the laws of their state.

This is the will of God.

What is the purpose of a prophet?

The primary purpose of a prophet is declare God’s impending punishment of a people if the people do not repent and turn back to God.

Isaiah in the Old Testament was a prophet.  Read through the Book of Isaiah and see what Isaiah the Prophet said.

As the video above shows, many Christians believe that prophecies of Isaiah keeps repeating itself in human history in cyclic ways (cycles) until the coming of Jesus Christ.

In other words, just as the prophecy of Isaiah against Damascus was fulfilled in the days of Isaiah, the same prophecy is fulfilled in the New Testament era and in the modern era.  It keeps being fulfilled.

In the same way, Isaiah’s prophecies against Israel and the Jewish people keeps being fulfilled, again and again, in history, in cyclic way.

That is why Jerusalem was completely destroyed in the Old Testament.  That is why Jerusalem was completely destroyed in the New Testament (70 AD).  That is why the prophecy of Isaiah will be fulfilled and Jerusalem will be completely destroyed again in the modern times.  Prophecies of the Old Testament keeps being fulfilled in cyclic forms.

Most Christians agree that this is true.

Prophecies of the Old Testament will be fulfilled in the modern era as well.

Prophet’s primary role is to declare the impending destruction that God will bring about as a judgment for not following the Word of God, generally as nations.

When Israel went away from the Word of God as a nation (not only as individuals!), God sent prophets to judge the nation as a whole, based on the direction of the leadership / national laws that went against God’s Law.

Laws of nations / policies of the politicians is the reason why God sends prophets against nations to declare God’s impending justice against that nation.

Just read the prophecies of Isaiah and Jeremiah.

Judgment is of nations for nation’s policies and laws that go against God’s Word.

Prophet’s primary role is the last warning in God’s justice system, before God actually carries out God’s declared punishment.

It is the very last chance to repent and be right with God as a nation, before God fulfills His promise (declared, impending justice of God).

Do you think that a loving God would intentionally bring about great suffering of a people?

Just read the Bible.

Remember the flood of Noah?

And how about Sodom and Gomorrah?

Not only does God of the Holy Bible intentionally cause great suffering of people, God of the Holy Bible even brings about the death of many people.  Noah’s Days.  Sodom’s Days.   Clear proofs.

This was not just in the Old Testament.

In the New Testament, Jesus Christ (who is God!) clearly initiated great suffering and death of many people.

This is clear in the destruction of Jerusalem in 70 AD, which Jesus Christ promised in the Gospels to do.  God always keeps promises.

God is the same yesterday, today, and tomorrow.

Does God work in history?

Yes, history is “His Story”, meaning that God guides history.

This is clear when you read any history.  One history in particular, the history of the English Reformation, shows that God guided history to bring the Reformation to England.  Without the English Reformation, there would not have been Puritans.  Without Puritans, there would not have been Plymouth or Massachusetts Bay Colony.  In fact, the United States of America would not have been predominantly Protestant Christian.

How did English Reformation happen?  It was not a pure road, like in Germany, where Martin Luther, following the Holy Bible, sacrificed himself to bring the German Reformation.  But sometimes, God uses the things of this world to effectuate God’s Will.

The TV Show, “The Tutors”, illustrates this, as it accounts the events before, during, and after the English Reformation.  (Warning:  The program is Rated R).

God works in mysterious ways in history to bring about God’s Will.  God’s ways are not man’s ways….

Obviously, Christians must do all they can to follow the Bible and act according to the Bible.  But Christians must recognize that God sometimes uses “unconventional” means to bring about what God wants.  History, as well as the Holy Bible, is proof of this.

Remember, it was out of adultery with Bathsheba (and killing of her lawful husband) that allowed King David to marry Bathsheba.  Out of this crime and heinous act, came a marriage that brought King David, who is the direct ancestor of Jesus Christ.  The prophecies of the Holy Bible prophesy and emphasize that Jesus Christ, the Messiah, is a direct heir of King David.

 

What does it mean to be a disciple of Christ?

Being a disciple of Christ does not mean that you get along with everyone.

Unfortunately, many modern day Christians have adopted a wrong definition of being a disciple of Christ, that does not jive with the teachings of the Holy Bible.

In the Bible, a disciple of Christ does three things:

(1) Deny Self

(2) Take up cross

(3) Follow Christ

This means that you need to deny yourself of ideas that you may like that do not go along with the Bible.  Even if you want to “love homosexuals”, you cannot, because God condemns homosexuality in the Bible.  You have to deny yourself of “loving homosexuals”, which in your sinful nature you may want to do, so that you appear to be a nice person to the world.

This means that you need to take up the cross.  What is a cross?  It is a symbol of death.  Official capital punishment by a government.  Obviously, Jesus Christ wants to emphasize that a true disciple of Christ should be willing to be executed under capital punishment of a government for following Jesus Christ.  This can happen to a convert to Christianity in Muslim countries, such as Saudi Arabia or Pakistan.  But it can happen in the USA, too.  A Christian must oppose gay marriage laws, even if it means that the Christian will be arrested or executed by the federal government.

Following Christ is not easy to do.  But that is what disciples of Christ do.

Do you think that the Republican Establishment is bullying Donald Trump the way Jewish religious establishment bullied Jesus Christ?

The Gospels in the Holy Bible clearly shows that the Jewish religious establishment bullied Jesus Christ, because Jesus Christ would not tow the Jewish religious establishment line.

Often, the establishment wants to crush all dissent.

In the United States of America, currently the establishment (both Democrat and Republican) wants to push a liberal agenda of supporting homosexuality and gay marriage.  Thus, the establishment (political, legal, social) wants to crush Christians who dissent and want to follow the Bible.

Donald Trump voices the dissent of many Christians, who want to see America become a Christian America and support biblical principles.

When the media or the Republican Establishment (RE) show up on TV and try to minimize Donald Trump, they are in a sense trying to minimize America’s Christians who want to follow the Bible.

The establishment will use the same kind of tactics against you to silence you, if you are a Christian who dissents with the liberal media and the liberal propaganda or the current US federal government (such as with gay marriage laws).

It is important for Christians in the United States to show the establishment (who are a very few people who have ruling power because of their political office or legal position as judges, etc.) that the American people will not be bullied into submission.

In this regard, supporting and protecting Donald Trump’s freedom of speech and freedom of ideas are, in fact, protecting your freedom of speech and freedom of ideas.

The establishment wants to bully Donald Trump into submission.

The establishment wants to bully you into submission.

They are, in essence, trying to make you into their slaves.  You have the right to follow the Bible.  You have the right to dissent against the Establishment.  You have the right to vote for whom you want,  And no one should bully you into submission.

You have the right to vote for pro-Bible politicians.  You have the right to be a follower of Christ, who upholds the principles of the Bible.

During Martin Luther’s time, even the local churches were trying to push the political agenda of the wayward Establishment.  That is why Martin Luther stood against the establishment in his time – both political and religious, just as Jesus Christ did.

Should Christians in America work toward Regime Change in the United States?

Unfortunately, Barack Obama’s America is an anti-Christian America.  That is what Mr. Obama is trying to create, while he is the President of the United States of America.

Obviously, an anti-Christian America is not in the best interest of Jesus Christ or the Bible.

Christians in America must seek to potentiate a Christian America, because that is what brings glory to Jesus Christ.

Regime Change in the United States of America is necessary:

(1) Homosexuals must be arrested, and gay marriage laws abolished

(2) Christianity must be respected in the United States, and Christians must not be persecuted for following the Bible.

(3) America’s Christian organizations should not be persecuted by the IRS or other wings of the US federal government

Under Obama’s America, Christians have suffered official US government persecution by IRS and other legal channgels.

Regime Change is necessary to glorify God.

Regime Change can occur through voting.  That is only one way.

Currently, there is 2016 elections under way.  Voting in pro-Christ political candidates is one way to effectuate a Regime Change.

To God be the Glory!

Should Donald Trump’s supporters be intimidated to step down?

As long as Donald Trump support’s the Bible’s emphasis of opposing homosexuality and gay marriage, Donald Trump’s supporters should support Donald Trump, if that is what they want to do.

They should not be intimidated by the media or Republican Establishment (RE) into backing down.

There is a trend to cripple Christians in American and bully Christians into submission.  This is clearly visible especially among homosexuals in CNN and TV who want to pressure Christians into backing down.

Donald Trump’s supporters should defend their rights with everything that they have.  Trying to make them submit is a way to take away their rights as Christians and as American citizens.

Every American is entitled to freedom of speech, freedom of ideas, and freedom of expression.

Media does not have the right to take that away from you.

Jesus Christ practiced His rights to freedom of speech by openly and publicly attacking the Jews and the Jerusalem Temple of the Jews.  Jesus Christ publicly cursed out Jewish cities and called for their destruction (which was fulfilled in 70 AD).

Jesus Christ set the tone for fighting to the death for freedom of speech, and that is why many Christians throughout centuries of Christian history did not back down and cowtow to media or political pressure.

Donald Trump’s supporters are defending their rights as Christians and as American citizens.  They are entitled to freedom of expression and freedom of ideas.

Like Jesus Christ, they have the right to fight to the death for this.

Should true Christians join the FBI, NSA, Homeland Security, and CIA?

Yes.

To make the United States of America a Christian country, it is absolutely necessary that true Christians in America are committed to this vision.

And it is more important for true Christians to occupy important positions in US government and especially US security and intelligence agencies.

Maybe you want to be a millionaire businessman.  But for the sake of Christ and the Kingdom of Christ, you should join the FBI or NSA and work toward securing a Christian America.

Dedicated Christians in the United States have to make sacrifices for Christ.  After all, Christ died to save you from eternal damnation.  Without sacrifices by true Christians, a Christian America cannot be established.

Christ clearly commands that Christians make “disciples of all nations”.  It must start at home. The United States of America as a nation must, first, become a disciple of Christ.

You must sacrifice yourself for the sake of Christ and the Kingdom of Christ.
